Would you recommend Save the Chimps?

What a blessing to be able to be of assistance to such wonderful beings. Most have been sacrificed in one way or another to biomedical research, so humankind has benefited by their suffering. Volunteering here gives one the opportunity to give back to the chimps, as well as be surrounded by wonderful and like minded people. There is no end to diversity in opportunities to use your talents in ways that can assist with the chimps.

Volunteering at Save The Chimps is really enjoyable, there are all kinds of things to do from working in the kitchen (counting bananas - - [1,320 per day], fresh fruit and vegetables, making oatmeal, pb&j sandwiches, chimp enrichment items, etc.) to helping out in the office. It’s fun and rewarding “work” plus you get to see the chimps enjoy their island. I highly recommend volunteering at STC.

Save the Chimps provides a permanent sanctuary for the lifelong care of chimpanzees rescued from research laboratories, entertainment, and the pet trade. It is incredibly rewarding to provide enrichment for these beautiful creatures who have been taken from their natural environment and abused by human beings.
